“Could be worse I guess”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

If you are in the middle of nowhere maybe this is the best you can get. Manager was great to deal with but hotel is in serious need of renovations. Pretty clean but very old/run down. Smelled heavily of cleaning products and carpets stained. Free breakfast was worth what you pay. On the good side, the blackout curtains worked great and there was no outside noise in spite of being right on the main route through town. Wi-Fi worked well.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Fort Sumner is a very small, but quaint town. We were there following the footsteps of Billy the Kid. Aside from the "Billy the Kid Country Inn" across the street, the Super 8 is the only other hotel in this town of population 1000. The people there were very nice. Our room was small, but clean and comfy. The room had a refrigerator, microwave and blow dryer. It was a very comfortable stay. The continental breakfast was pretty good; cinnamon rolls, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, and toast. It's a great location, right in between the 2 Billy the Kid museums. Fort Sumner is a beautiful little town with farm houses and green fields. It's worth checking out! A little off the beatin' path, but a hidden gem!

A very welcome sight late at night--every hotel in our original destination was booked. Ft Sumner Super 8 was a welcome respite to an exhausted grandmother and grandson. Very clean, well stocked with linens, cool on a very hot night. The staff were exceptionally cordial.
